Pimp My Cube Contest

This post brought to you by Contest Factory. All opinions are 100% mine.

Office cubicles are one of the most unorganized places we spend our time in. People tend to neglect cleaning up and repair work there and they end up getting messier everyday. Targeting this issue, Contest Factory has come up with the Pimp My Cube Contest for people who have messy cubicles that need major changes.

Pimp My Cube is searching for the worst, most pathetic and messy cubicle or office. If you feel that your workspace has bad furniture, old technology or is messy, unorganized, noisy, dirty, dark or in short is a bad place to work in, this contest is perfect for you. All you need to do is upload a video of your cubicle and explain why Contest Factory needs to pimp your cube. This is what your video should be like-

Once you upload your video, invite your friends, family, co-workers to vote for your video. You can also comment on videos uploaded by other people. If you get enough votes and the judges think your cubicle needs to be pimped, you stand to win the grand prize worth $1200. Your cubicle will be updated with either of the three-

  • New high end computer system
  • New Desk, Chair and Decorations
  • New Entertainment Package with high end stereo, espresso machine etc.

Make sure your videos are convincing and humor is always welcome everywhere. The contest ends on 31st January 2012, 12:00 PM. So all you people reading this post, sitting in a messy cubicle, try your luck. Your workspace might just get a makeover.

Jobless with a couple of jobs

This post is for everyone who has been wondering where I've been all this time. I've started with my last semester in college and it is turning out to be synonymous to joblessness. For those who don't know yet, last September I got a job offer from Nagarro Software, Gurgaon. It was followed in December by another job offer from Applied Materials, Bangalore 🙂 . In other news, I took my GRE last September and got a pretty decent score of 323/340. I'm not applying to any university this year at least; not interested in doing a post graduation as of now. I would be joining Applied Materials this July most probably. So, in short, no more campus placements for me and studies have never been an issue in college. With a little over 3 months left, I think I'll take some time off and relax this semester.

Just when the jobless me was typing this post, I realized that I do have a lot of work to do in the near future like the college magazine design work and a website design. So I've decided to post some random updates once in a while till May after which I'll have two months that can be called the epitome of joblessness. My blog would get a completely new look around that time. Until then, stay tune to the random jibber-jabber.

The eight pointer tale

/*Note:My 7th semester in college is busier than I thought it would be. Exam time seems to be the time I get the most free time ironically 😀 . I was going through the unpublished drafts and found this entry dated 16th June 2011. I have no clue what I wanted to write about back then though */

My twitter followers would already know, my 6th semester result came out earlier this month and I managed an all time personal best SGPA of 8.37. This is the first time I managed to cross 8. So, though it was a very forgettable semester for me, I decided to look back at my 6th semester and compare it with the rest of my college life to find out the secret behind the unusually high GPA. I'll restrict myself to discussing academic stuff for the sake of this post.

This is the point where I stopped typing on 16th June. Now the only part I remember about the 6th semester was that it was the semester in which I studied the least. I had to submit a minor project which weighed a good number of credits and helped me boost up my GPA. The only other difference from the previous semesters was that I studied with a friend of mine who is a day scholar. That helped a lot as for the first time in my college life, I was able to complete my course well before the exams. Have a minor tomorrow, signing off with a couple of notes for myself-

1. I should study with a friend if I want better grades
2. I should make a rough draft of a post else I might end up forgetting what I wanted to write in some time.
